Telepathy, Is it a Myth or Fact?
Today, in television there are more and more magician who use their telepathic ability to read minds of others. The audience were made fascinated with the telepathic skills.
The word telepathy comes from the Greek word ‘Tele’ which means far or distance, and ‘pathy’ is derived from the word ‘Pathé’ which means feelings. The term was created in 1882 by a French psychic researcher, Fredric WH Myers, founder of the American Society for Psychical Research (ASPR).
In the world of metaphysics, such capabilities are classified into the ESP or Extra Sensory Perception. The concept is the process of low-frequency electromagnetic waves between one mind with another.
When the electromagnetic wave successfully transmits signals from a brain that has been focused, then the person who has received the signal means they have the same frequency with the person who sends the signal (the person doing telepathy).
Folk tales from around the world is full of examples of telepathy, which exist not only between different species, but even among the elements of nature and species.
